Uncontrolled rockets unexpectedly entering airspace over America "accidentally" is one thing, but when that accident belongs to China, one REALLY has to wonder just how much of an accident it really was.
Just as its leaders ridiculed America for taking offense to them floating a giant spy balloon over America, China is refusing to admit that one of its rockets recently disintegrating over Texas was anything more than an accident.
China sure is involved in a lot of "accidents" that are making Americans VERY uneasy. Especially since we don't have anyone with a spine in the White House to deal with them.
"U.S. Space Command can confirm the People’s Republic of China CZ-2D Rocket Body, SCC# 52910, reentered the Earth’s atmosphere over the southern region of North America at approximately 8:30 pm MT on March 7, 2023," a United States Space Command spokesperson recently told America, adding:
There was no physical impact to North America. Rocket bodies, satellites, and meteors reenter over the Earth on a regular basis, and most burn up in the atmosphere. This was an uncontrolled reentry, meaning it was not ‘steered’ but rather its orbit decayed and lowered naturally. This type of behavior reinforces the need for better international norms regarding high-risk uncontrolled reentries.
